Recycled plastic is being found in more and more products by request of both consumers and manufacturers. Recycling plasticis a service many cities see as beneficial enough to offer as a part of standard waste management package. Consumers see reminders to recycle plastic packaging on labels and bins often strategically placed next to purchase areas. A newer label now becoming common is the amount of post-consumer waste in a product or packaging. Now not only recycling the item is important, but also making the item, or at least part of it, out of recycled materials adds value to consumer and manufacturer.
Recycling plastic is common in many applications. Rotational molding has many opportunities to recycle products. Scrap materials are collected, cleaned, ground into plastic powder, and made a uniform color. It can then be processed to make a variety of parts ranging from secondary containment products, laundry carts, bulk storage containers and more. A growing number of rotomolded products are being manufactured out of recycled materials. However, food or medical grade applications must be manufactured in certified virgin prime materials without the use of recycled material.
